From the Old Takoma Business Assocation:
“Cielo Rojo is now open now at 7056 Carroll Avenue, Takoma Park. This new family-owned, fine-casual Mexican restaurant serves traditional cuisine including tacos, enchiladas, pozole, gorditas, carnitas, salsas, moles and more. Tortillas are handmade in-house, grinding their heirloom corn that comes from Oaxaca, Mexico. There is a carefully crafted tequila and mezcal menu and cocktails.
[Check out their Menu here.]
The festive dining room includes traditional tiles, Mexican photography by Kelly Puleio, Mexican artwork, a copper bar and warm woods. Diners can enjoy watching tortillas being made in an open kitchen and seeing Chef David Perez at work. Takoma Park native, Carolina McCandless, is Director of Operations. Come spring, a sidewalk dining area will be available for diners to enjoy.
Hours: currently open for dinner 5pm-10pm
Open for lunch and brunch on weekends in the near future.
